It was 1860 when Louis Ulysse Chopard, a talented young craftsman, first opened his workshop. His watches soon earned him a solid reputation in Eastern Europe, Russia and Scandinavia. Over the years, Chopard experienced spectacular growth, becoming one of the best known names in the watch and high-end jewellery sector, famed for his creativity, technology and the excellence of his craftsmen. His success was based on strict principles and clear values: independence, quality, excellence, creativity, tradition, respect and boldness. Today, Chopard is synonymous with exclusive diamond, sapphire, ruby and emerald compositions with the most exceptional and original cuts and dimensions, reflecting a glamorous craftsmanship in which creativity, skill and technique are pushed to the limit. Chopard’s unique interpretation of ultimate luxury, femininity, class and fashion are also apparent in the brand’s eyewear collections, which bear witness to the inseparable bond between the frame designs and the unmatched lines of the brand’s high-end jewellery.
